Dome table clock in cloisonné enamel.
Patek Philippe combined a decoration inspired by ancient Persian porcelain and a palette evoking the splendors of India in this unique piece in Grand Feu cloisonné enamel, an invitation to relive the charm of the Orient.
To outline the delicate pattern of flowers and arabesques, the enameler used 15.05 m of gold wire (30.1 g) measuring 0.2 x 0.6 mm in cross-section. He then brought the image to life, working with transparent, opaque and opalescent enamels in some 50 colors to obtain a vast range of subtle shades. Each enameled panel required between 8 and 12 firings at temperatures ranging from 850°C to 900°C. An hour circle adorned with black-enameled Breguet numerals frames a dial center in cloisonné enamel bearing leaf-shaped hands.
This piece is powered by the caliber 17’’’ PEND mechanical movement rewound by an electric motor.
